TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

An attempted home invasion ended in a shooting early Saturday morning at the 14400 block of West Kestrel Road, according to Pima County Sheriff's Department PIO Tracy Suitt.

The call came in around 1:20 a.m. and, when authorities arrived, they found 26-year-old Luis Antonio Lupercio severely injured. Deputies attempted life saving measures, but the man succumbed to his injuries and died at the home.

Authorities said that, overnight, 4 people entered the home, armed with guns. They demanded property in the home and one of the residents was injured. 

As they fled, a neighbor heard the noise and came to the house. A confrontation occurred between him and one of the suspects. Shots were fired and the suspect died from his injuries, according to Lt. David Theel of the Pima County Sheriff's Department. 

Detectives have arrested two of the men who fled. The first is 17-year-old Robert M. Pryor. He is being charged with first degree murder in this case. He has been booked into Pima County Jail and will be considered an adult in the trial.

The second arrest happened Sunday morning. Osvaldo Carrillo-Valenzuela, 20-years-old, was arrested and booked on first degree murder charges.

Pryor and Carrillo-Valenzuela are not being accused of shooting Luis Antonio Lupercio. But, in Arizona, if a death occurs while someone is committing a felony, it is considered grounds for a murder charge. 

Detectives will not yet confirm if there was a previous relationship between the suspects and the people inside the home.

Homicide Detectives are currently searching for the three other suspects and Sheriff's Deputies say that they have very strong leads. Anyone with information regarding the incident is being asked to call 9-1-1 or 88-CRIME.
